motorhome or camper trailer ?

we are thinking about our future. we love travelling around and thinking to invest to a motorhome or camper trailer to travel first for our holidays with kids and also when we retired and live in it for a long period. what do you think? what brand anyone got the same experience  ?

We did a 2 week drive in a motorhome - 3A and 3Kids. Although everything is already setup for you when you stop somewhere the annoying thing for us, is if we decided to go into town for dinner or just a short drive we had to pack everything up, like the extension cables, water hoses and when we get back to our holiday park we had to set everything up again. ideally you need another car.

We ended up buying a camper trailer, and although this is great, i think we will upgrade to a pop-up caravan eventually as it is a bit easier to setup.

We had a beautiful much loved Winnebago, sadly it went up in flames on mothers day 3 years ago, I still grieve over it, we had a faulty battery smart charger, it didn't stop charging & caught fire just 1 day before our big trip of 6 months, we lost everything, if it was a day later, we would have lost our lives. Our Winnie was the best thing we have ever purchased. Sadly we didn't have enough money to replace it so we brought a caravan, that is not the same as our Winnie, I loved the security of being able to walk through to the cab & move on if it didn't feel safe in a camp site. We had so many great adventures in it, you should weigh up the lone camper-safety side before you decide caravan vs motorhome. Cheers, Caz

I met a familiy that was travelling with two kids and a camper trailer. The big disadvantage for them was that you can't reach your things in the trailer during travelling when the trailer is folded together. On the other hand a Motorhome is more expensive and it can be a bit annoying when you need to find a car park. The trailer is practical, because you can just leave it somewhere and take the car for a day journey without having to deal with drinving around in a big motorhome.
I hope I could help you a bit.
Many greetings
